I have to break up with my 1985 325

I find myself in need of cash, but I'm dragging my feet on posting my 1985 325 for sale.

It's in good shape overall, and has only 54000 miles, but there are a few things I've been living with. Just looking for some advice on how to best market it, and what things I should be sure to fix before I post it to ensure a quick sale.

Known problems:
-The air compressor isn't starting automatically, but I can jumper it and get it to run. The leveling system otherwise works fine.
-The jacks need to be adjusted so they consistently drop vertically (one of them likes to extend before it folds down)
-The in-dash a/c/fan/heat doesn't work
-The generator starts and runs fine, but shuts down on its own after about 20 minutes
-It has the rear twins, but the mattresses are missing. We've been using a queen air mattress instead.
- I have all the dinette parts except the cushions, but the PO removed it in favor of table and chairs.

Any thoughts?

(For the record- this is not a for sale post, unless you want it to be.)

Current condition, coupled with remote location, $10k. Fix the little issues, generator, and reinstall dinette, $15-18k, get replacement cushions, $20k. Recover exterior, $25k. If tires are over 3yrs old, subtract $2k from all prices.
